Thanks for the plasmoid. I just had one problem with the rows in a vertical panel so I made a small modification that swaps rows and columns when the panel is vertical. With the change, one row translates to one vertical column in a vertical panel.

The patch is here: http://paste.debian.net/143937/ - Nov 08 2011

Line 146 of main.py refers to a function "configDenied" that isn't defined for your applet class. That bug keeps the configuration interface from showing. Commenting out that line fixes the problem.

I've made a few changes that I think should mostly work. You can try them out with this version of the script:

I'll install Audacious 2 and see what I can do. - Nov 04 2009
I think this should be fixed with the newest version. Please let me know if it's not. - Nov 04 2009
Sorry to be responding so late, but could you point me to some of the songs that have problem lyrics so I can try to figure out what's going wrong? - Nov 04 2009
Thanks for the update. I actually just fixed this the other day. I just hadn't packaged a new version yet. The weird characters are HTML entities, and they're converted to the real text in the latest version. - Nov 04 2009

It should be possible. It looks like that script uses xwininfo to find the program spotify.exe running under wine and then gets the artist and songname from the window title. The only problems are that spotify isn't available in my country yet, but when it is, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. - Aug 31 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by helldrive 7 comments

ImportError: No module named lastfmtrack

Is this module supposed to be included with your package, or does it come with another package? - Jul 09 2009
Those should have been 'dpkg -i /tmp/lyricsdownloader_0.9.4.deb' and 'sudo dpkg -i /tmp/lyricsdownloader_0.9.4.deb' respectively. - Jul 08 2009
You might be able to open a file browser to your /tmp directory and double click the file. If that doesn't work, the surest way would be to use the command 'dpkg -i tmp/lyricsdownloader_0.9.4.deb' from a root terminal or 'sudo dpkg -i tmp/lyricsdownloader_0.9.4.deb' if you're on a distribution that uses sudo. Please be sure to include your distribution if these suggestions don't work for you. - Jul 08 2009

Thanks. I was aware of the issue. There were some problems with the index.theme file. I'll be uploading a new package shortly, but if you want, you can just get the new theme file and put in ~/.kde/share/icons/OxygenRefit2-black-version/ and it should work fine.

Karamba & Superkaramba by downdiagonal 19 comments

Thank you. To change the size, you'll have to resize the images used for the digits. You should be able to enter the 'imgshd' and 'minshd' directories and run something like 'mogrify -resize 80% *'. If you do that, you'll also have to change some of the offsets in the theme file.

The easiest way to resize would be to run it as a plasmoid. Then plasma will add a resize handle. - May 21 2009
I just updated. Check out the new version and the change log. You should be able to get lyricsdownloader to output a conky alignment setting now. In your case, your conkyrc should look something like this:
Quote:${font}${execpi 10 ~/.scripts/lyricsdownloader.py -a '${alignc}' | fold -sw60 }${font} - May 11 2009
This is kind of a hackish way to achieve what you want to do. I'll have to consider adding an alignment option for future revisions, but right now, you can change the final "else:" in the printLyrics command from:

Quote: else: print '\n'.join(lyrics)
to:
Quote: else: print '\n'.join(map(lambda x: x.center(100),lyrics)) - May 11 2009
You would use it like this:
Quote:${font}${execi 10 lyricsdownloader -c 50 | fold -sw60 }${font}
or you can just drop the fold altogether like this:
Quote:${font}${execi 10 lyricsdownloader -c 50 }${font}
The fold command just makes sure that no line exceeds 60 characters. Sometimes the lyrics returned have long lines that make your conky grow horizontally. - May 02 2009
I hope you managed to get it working at all. I totally missed your previous comment. About getting it to display in two columns, that's done by using the -c and -t switches and running two separate conkys. The first conky would use something like "lyricsdownloader -c 50" and the second one would use "lyricsdownloader -t 50". That way, if the lyrics are more than 50 lines, the second conky displays everything after the 50th, but disappears otherwise. - Apr 30 2009

Plasma 4 Extensions by thymythos 42 comments

I don't have any idea how to enable the tooltips. I have an intel-hda (82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) to be specific) and before I made the changes, it only showed two channels also. Now I've got sliders for master, pcm, digital, int mic, and ext mic. The only one that doesn't work is digital. Alsaaudio says there's no such channel for some reason. The reason they all control the same channel is that you're setting all the tooltips to 'Master' and then using that tooltip to tell changeVolume what mixer to control.

About Phonon/Solid, the AudioInterface class in PyKDE4.solid looks like it might do the job. I don't think it would be too difficult to also add a configuration dialog that tells it what channels to display. - Feb 24 2009
Mixeroid

Plasma 4 Extensions by thymythos 42 comments

I had to changes some things with this plasmoid to get it to run. In the loop that adds the sliders, some of the mixers on my system return an empty list when you call getvolume() and some of them return a value of -MAXINT. So I added some checks to make sure it doesn't throw any exceptions. Also, shouldn't "slider.setToolTip('Master')" be "slider.setToolTip(m)" since presumable you want the tooltip to correspond to the channel you're controlling? Lastly, I'm not sure why you're setting the channel in that loop when it's not used and just gets set when you call changeVolume anyway.

My changes are here: http://pastebin.com/f14e25065 - Feb 23 2009
Thanks.

That seems to be a problem with trying to use the clock in an existing conkyrc. You might try adding a ${font} tag before the call to the clock, or we can try to add some space to that first line to make it line up. To do that, you'll have to change the line:

Quote:
for g,i in enumerate(horzclock(hours,minutes,seconds)): print cols(columns,g,options.font)+fontpiz + ' '.join(i)

To:
Quote:
for g,i in enumerate(horzclock(hours,minutes,seconds)): print ['',' '][g==0] + cols(columns,g,options.font)+fontpiz + ' '.join(i)


Note that that should still be just one line. You should be able to change the number of spaces in this part, ,' '] until you can get it to line up correctly. - Feb 16 2009
Hi lonerocker,

Can you post a screenshot so that I can maybe tell what the problem is?

Also, you might try changing draw_shades to no. - Feb 15 2009

In my opinion, a temporary hack to fix a problem is better than nothing. The svn version of my script actually has a whitelist of acceptable characters, and anything that's not in that list just gets dropped out. It's somewhat similar to your solution, just more generic.

As far as changing the text color, you'll need to edit the conkyrc. You need to change this line:

Quote:${font}${execi 10 lyricsdownloader | fold -sw60 }${font}

To this:
Quote:${font}${color 000000}${execi 10 lyricsdownloader | fold -sw60 }${font}

Where 000000 is the hex code for the color you want. Like ffffff for white and ff0000 for red and 00ff00 for green and so on. It's just HTML notation. You can also just change the value for default_color in the file if that's easier for you. Let me know if you have any more problems. - Dec 29 2008
